Portrait of Pomeroy offers an overview of this historically invaluable collection and provides insight into the personality of this unique collector for the first time.
Walter Pomeroy has single handedly assembled an extensive private collection of painting and drawing by local artists of the 1950s and 1960s. But the full scope of his collection has never been the subject of an exhibition, and for years Pomeroy's accomplishment remained one of the best-kept secrets of San Diego's art community.
